The Time Traveler Convention

A fine idea, hatched by some student at MIT, to hold a Time Traveler Convention, in part out of the hope to lure future time travelers to the event. My only suggestion would be the need to beef up their reading list considerably, but who knows? Perhaps that's part of the lure, to get literate time travelers to journey back and let them know that any list of time travel books that doesn't include David Gerrold The Man Who Folded Himself and Fritz Lieber's "Changewar" stories (on the fiction side), and Kip Thorne's Black Holes and Time Warps and Michio Kaku's Hyperspace (on the nonfiction side) needs some serious revision.

The idea of a time travel convention that is both singular and never-ending is one that I've had in mind to write for a while now, and may get around to it, sooner or later. It's the type of idea that occurs to me on the plane ride home from an sf convention, that I then carry around in my head for months and years before finding the time to sit down and actually write them. "O One" was one of those, for what it's worth.
